    Anyone have one of these?
    https://www.nokia.com/en_int/phones/nokia-7-plus

    I pre-ordered one and it should be here in a few weeks.
    It should be out already in Asia.

    I had a motorola g5+ for the last year. It is good for it's price, but are to slow to get updates and i want a better camera and cpu.
    And the android one program ls very temping.

    I can still cancel my order in case something better comes along with a good price to performance. I think the pixel2 is overpriced and pixel1 got the bluetooth problem.
    And i despise Samsung's knox.

    I am waiting for Nokia 6 2018 to be available, glad to hear that you went for the Nokia 7. Owners of the new Nokia just swear by it.

    That Nokia 7 is very nice looking....

    Good luck with Android One..... My Moto X4 "Android One Edition" is still on Android 8.0... My Nexus 6P and 5X are on 8.1 and have been since January... The only real advantage I've seen to Android One, is the "closer to stock" Android...

    Motorola used to be good with updates as well.... Now they appear to be on par with Samsung....

    I will get the Nokia 7 plus in only one condition. That is has stereo speakers! I cannot stand a $hitty mono speaker.

    Aside from this, the phone is fantastic in every way.

    Got this phone today, but some things bother me. The device updated to 8.1 right away. I'm using a 256GB microSD from my previous S7E, formatted it, but I can't format it to internal storage. Whatever I try, it's not possible. My GF's Nokia 6 with 8.1 does that just fine.

    I also tried a 32GB SD card, no avail. I formatted it to portable storage, but I can't seem to move any app to SD. Saving pics and vids to SD storage is working correctly. BTW, my N7+ formats SD's to FAT32 (lol) compared to exFAT what the S7E does. So much for long 4K vids.

    Would this be the same on the Xiaomi Mi A1 (also Android One)? That phone also has a microSD slot.

    I guess it's because of Android One. External storage is an enigma to Google.

    It does work, only for saving pics and media. Not transferring apps. Formatting as internal storage is not possible, while my GF's Nokia 6 with 8.1 can. There is no way to move apps from internal -> external. Might be a bug. I hope so.

    I really like my N7+. Although it has some 8.1 related bugs, like BT disconnects. It randomly disconnects my fitness tracker (never had that problem with my S7e) and Garmin nav/car.

    This problem seems to be with every Android 8.1 device, look for it on the Pixel/Nexus forums. Not the first time Google screws up in the BT department.

    A temporary solution is enabling developers options and set Bluetooth AVRCP to 1.3 (1.4 being default). It makes things a bit more stable, but not completely error free.

    I spoke with some Nokia chatguy about the external storage shortcomings and the response basically was that 64GB ought to be enough for everyone and that it was the devs choice to disable it.
